About Us

The Kidney Foundation of Canada is people working together for a common cause. We are volunteers, individuals living with kidney disease, donors, and staff members — from all walks of life, all across Canada.

Since its creation in 1964, The Kidney Foundation has helped millions of Canadians suffering from kidney failure and related disorders such as hypertension, diabetes, urinary tract infections and kidney stones. 


Kidney health, and improved lives for all people affected by kidney disease.


The Kidney Foundation of Canada is the national volunteer organization committed to reducing the burden of kidney disease through:

  • funding and stimulating innovative research;
  • providing education and support;
  • promoting access to high quality healthcare; and
  • increasing public awareness and commitment to advancing kidney health and organ donation

Since 1964, our fundraising campaigns have allowed us to contribute millions of dollars to research, and to provide services to individuals living with chronic kidney disease and related conditions.


The Kidney Foundation of Canada is proud to be a member of the Imagine Canada Ethical Code, a set of standards that ensures both financial accountability and best practices for soliciting and managing donations.  As part of our compliance to the Ethical Code, please find provided below a link to our T-3010 returns which are filed annually with the Canada Revenue Agency, and a link to our Investment Policy related to our assets. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our donors for their continual commitment to our work in reducing the burden of kidney disease. 

If you have any questions about our adherence to the Code, please contact us. You can also view the Ethical Code at www.imaginecanada.ca/files/www/en/ethicalcode/ec_handbook_2011_en.pdf
